Ronald Koeman sends message to Barcelona stars ahead of Dynamo Kiev game

Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman has warned his side there is no time for error against Dynamo Kyiv on Wednesday night.

The Blaugrana face the Ukrainian side in their third Champions League group stage against the after failing to pick up any points so far.

Defeats against Bayern Munich and Benfica have left the Spanish giants bottom of the group after the club’s worst ever start in the competition.

Therefore, a win is a must against Kyiv as the Catalans also look to continue to build momentum ahead of this weekend’s Clásico against Real Madrid. 

The Dutch tactician is aware of that, and has told his men to simply win on Wednesday night.

He said during a press conference: “It’s a decisive game. We have to win to have the option of getting through the group.”

“It depends on circumstances and where the team is, but it’s normal to demand the quarter finals, semi finals or the finals. It’s not the moment to think about this. The first step is the game tomorrow,” he concluded

Already four behind Benfica, that is a real problem if they cannot win the games against Kyiv, as well as the one against Benfica.

Failure to progress from the group would be a huge problem for Koeman, and indeed Barca as a club given their financial struggles.
